The Homer Ministerial Association would like to say “thank you” to all of the supporters who made this year’s Eighth Annual Harvest Carnival a success. This year, 1,053 people attended the carnival, which is held annually on Halloween Weekend at Christian Community Church.

This free community event would not have been possible without the many volunteers who helped to set up, run games and clean up — or the many, many donations of candy. Thank you.

HMA would also like to thank the following businesses and individuals for their contributions: Ulmer’s Drug and Hardware for the discount on the bouncy house; Homer Friends of the NRA for the use of their block-up BB gun range; Christian Community Church for the use of their facility; Peninsula Radio Group for their advertising; Paul Rader for the use of his bouncy house slide; Huckleberry Bishop for help organizing; Seth Baker with the Ignite Youth Group for helping to serve the community; All Hopped Up for letting us post our sign; and Rick Alward who had the original vision and who puts so much into this event every year. We have already begun planning for next year’s event, with changes that will include a larger area for the younger children’s games. 

To all the Elsas, Iron Men, Power Rangers, Tiggers, that especially cute newborn carrot, and all the rest — thank you for spending your evening with us.

David Taylor, Christian Community Church
